29 Aug 06, 11:42 AM - Staying in is the new going out
If, like most of us, you're a day behind because of the bank holiday and haven't got your Friday night organised yet, here's something to add to the calendar. A new nightlcub called Wheelies officially opens its doors this Friday, the 1st September, at 9pm UK time.
Owned by Simon Stevens, who has cerebral palsy, Wheelies aims to make guests feel comfortable about disability as well as dancing, drinking and just plain having a good time.
But this isn't a normal nightclub - you can go clubbing without even leaving the couch because Wheelies is totally virtual, and it's only accessible via your computer. It's part of 'SecondLife' - a virtual, online 3D world built entirely by its 500,000 residents worldwide. (www.secondlife.com)
There's lots happening on the launch night - a live DJ, a live singer and free food. Although how you eat virtual food is something we haven't quite worked out yet...
